The Housing Trust Fund Project is pleased to announce the launch of its new website: www.housingtrustfundproject.org. We have an updated website that we hope will be easier to navigate and utilize. We invite you to take a look.
The goal of the Housing Trust Fund Project website is to serve as a resource for advocates working on Housing Trust Fund campaigns in all stages of development. The website has overview information about state and local housing trust funds, the essential elements of a housing trust fund, information about housing trust fund campaigns, a publication and resource library, and an In the News section. The section on state and local housing trust funds has information about revenue sources broken down by state, county and city funds. The essential elements section gives a detailed description of a housing trust fund proposal, administration, distribution of funds, oversight and reporting, eligible uses and applicants, income targeting, length of affordability, and state enabling legislation. The campaign section provides information about strategy, building a coalition, and communications and messaging, with example documents from state and local campaigns from around the nation.
One new feature of the site is a rotating photo images on our home page. We plan to use this space to highlight the success of our partners in the field. If you have a big rally or lobby day, send us a photo, and we will work you into the rotation. Include a brief description of the activity pictured, as well as any campaign information that you would like to share. Send your photos and any feedback about the website to Michael Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
